Does this Korean video break down August's HSK6 exam?

This video on YouTube appears to dissect August's HSK6 exam, and compares it to previous HSK6 exam difficulty.  I can't speak Korean, so I'm wondering if anyone can help me understand what's in the video.  The date 22년08월21일 matches the actual exam date.

 

Actually they seem to be doing it each month:

 

- August 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNtfwuOoEfg
- July 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xto_ZKkKcYQ
- June 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzbcUPREVqw
- May 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjyZzSO1yMM
- April 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmheYHmkU6Y
- March 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0H1JWCFbs4 [this is the one I took]
- February 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNQAyId2LK0

 

In fact, there seems to be multiple YouTube channels doing the same thing; two others for August 2022 are:

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B--49PPp86Y

 

They're all uploaded on the day of the exam.

So yes, I found three videos directly giving the answers to the HSK6, and are published on the same day as the exam.  It seems there are teachers taking the HSK6 exams each month, memorizing the questions and answers, and creating these videos.  (It's not clear to me if the exam has finished worldwide when these videos are uploaded.  It's not clear to me whether or not questions are re-used in HSK exams.)

 

Whether we like this or not, this is going to be one of the essential study methods for the HSK6.  The official past exams (汉语水平考试真题集 HSK 六级 2018版 Official Examination Papers of HSK (Level 6)) are getting old and there's only 5 of them, and the HSK6 past exams from 2010-2013 are not at the same level of difficulty.  At the same time, it is possible to take past exams for practice on the chinesetest.cn website.

 

The first video I found is this video: HSK 6급 총평 답안 22년08월21일 HSK6급 듣기 쓰기 독해 난이도 | HSK시험 중국어시험 HSK독학 중국어공부 | 치킨 이벤트 | 남미숙 중국어 강남학원 모정  There's parts of it in Chinese, but lots in Korean.  My notes:

Sounds fishy...  Have you discovered a cheating scheme,  maybe involving Korean kids taking the exam in a different time zone?  For the normal entrance exams for primary,  middle, secondary,  and university levels,  the Koreans take cheating very,  very seriously.  I have heard that even the police have been known to be involved.

 

During exam season,  Japanese TV even shows police squad cars being used with sirens blaring and lights flashing to get a kid who overslept to his or her exam on time. They don't mess around.

 

I bet they would be interested to find out there was a cheating scheme operating right out in plain sight,  under their very noses, as HSK is a component of evaluation schemes for educational purposes. 

 

Just sayin'...

I've been thinking about this a lot the last few days.  The thing is, I don't know.  I'm considering taking the HSK6 again, and I don't know if this is considered acceptable or if it's considered "leaked" and could lead to consequences.  At the same time, I feel if I don't use it to prepare, I'll be at a disadvantage.

 

I'm leaning towards it being acceptable.  This is mostly because you can actually take official mock tests at chinesetest.cn, which I understand to be past exams.  (Or I could have personally taken every one of those exams, and used that for study practice for subsequent exams.)  One of my Chinese teachers said it's standard practice to share 高考 questions all over the Internet immediately afterwards.  The Chinese teachers I've discussed it with seem to think it's just an efficient study method.  If the test has concluded, what's the problem?  The first thing I did after my university exams was discuss specific questions and answers with everyone.

 

Now the question is: do they upload these videos before the tests have concluded worldwide?  The next HSK slot is the 17th (in 2 days), so we can watch the three channels on that day and find out precisely when they upload their videos.

Wow, so I guess you could theoretically use this content to cheat on the exam if you live in the right timezone? The US west coast is 15 hours behind Beijing, which means this video came out just after midnight for them.
